The AAMC on Monday announced the 10 winners of the second AspiringDocs.org Video Contest. As part of the AAMC’s AspiringDocs.org campaign – a Web site and outreach effort to encourage diversity in the medical field- college students from across the country were asked to submit a two-minute video explaining what motivated them to increase diversity in medicine. Each winner will be awarded $500 toward the cost of applying to medical school and a suite of AAMC publications (a $100 value), including The Official Guide to the MCAT. The winning videos can be viewed on AAMC’s YouTube site and each winner is profiled on AspiringDocs.org.
